I, the undersigned, call on Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to immediately and unconditionally end the military trial of civilians.
Nearly 12,000 people have now been subjected to a form of justice that is in stark contradiction of their human rights, and breaks Egypt's international obligations as a signatory to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Death sentences have been handed down, minors have been sentenced to serve in adult prisons, detainees have been tortured and subjected to virginity checks.
This is not the liberated Egypt the world celebrated with on February 11th.
This military injustice has to stop, and we will continue to exert domestic and international pressure on SCAF until they do.
